Timelapse: Dark Nights of St. Agnes, Isles of Scilly

20 Jun , 2013 by

Photographer Graham Gaunt recently spent a week on the beautiful island of St. Agnes, Isle of Scilly during an unusual stretch of clear weather. “I spent every night awake dragging my gear out at dusk and returning to sleep at dawn,” Graham wrote on Vimeo. “No matter how much I thought I had planned out each shot the unraveling of the nights events always brought new and different surprises.”

Thanks to Graham for capturing and sharing his wonderful night views and experiences!

    The Isles of Scilly are a stunning island group with very little light polution – just a few Lighthouses. They are only a few miles from my home and can be seen from Lands End. Have kayaked between Lands End and the Islands 2.5 tmes (30 miles) you really feel alone out there.
